Spring is the time of year when we start thinking about clearing everything out and buying new, and that means we need a shopping weekend to replace everything. A weekend break in Bath means one thing and one thing only for those of you who are thinking about giving the house (or yourselves) an overhaul – a visit to Bath Artisan Market.
Held on the second Sunday of each month, the market is completely undercover and offers the handiwork of more than 80 talented designers – all in a fun, welcoming atmosphere. There’s no pressure to buy, so if you prefer to take your time and browse you’ll be more than welcome, and within moments of arriving you’ll be noticing unique items that your home just can’t do without. The stalls also include local produce to keep you going, as well as a special area where children can try their hands at crafts too.
If all that shopping sounds a little bit tiring then why not book one of the Royal Hotel’s Bath spa breaks? The breaks are ideal for two people and include two nights at the stylish hotel, breakfast or dinner (depending on the package) and a trip to the Thermae spa nearby.
